I'm kind of a cluttery person. (Google is telling me "cluttery" isn't a word, but I beg to differ.) My bedside table is piled high with half completed projects, letters from my favorite missionary, jewelry, etc. I have two closets completely full of all my stuff. My desktop is no different. The fact that things are even slightly organized into folders is a big deal. If I'm working on a project, I save it to my desktop so I can remember to come back to it.
My dad introduced me to the coolest tool ever. And now I'm sharing it with you. Fences cleans up your desktop by creating "containers" that you can resize and move around your screen. Plus, here is the magical part: when you double click, the icons go away. (Don't worry, double click again and they come right back!) You can also set a specific "fence" to not disappear when you double click.
Convinced? You can download fences here.
And now that you will be able to see your desktop, here are some simple desktop wallpapers that I made tonight.
Click the image to open the larger size, right click + save image as, set it as your wallpaper with the "fit to screen" option.
